Le Moyne to Adopt Google's Mail Service for Students and Alumni
Le Moyne and Information Technology are partnering with Google to adopt Gmail as the new e-mail service for students and alumni. The transition from the old "NetMail" to "Gmail" occurred on June 1. However, access to your NetMail will remain for several weeks thereafter, to allow for a smooth migration.
Gmail offers numerous potential benefits to our students and alumni-notably:
- E-mail storage of up to 7500MB per user.
Le Moyne currently offers its students and alumni 100MB of e-mail storage.
Gmail is one of the leading web based e-mail applications today. Many of our alumni already use Gmail.
- Reliability and Availability
The Google partnership will help ensure an always on always available mail service regardless of location. Google promises not more than nine (9) hours of downtime per year.
- Privacy and Security
The Google Apps mail service comes to us without advertising and offers enhanced protection against viruses and SPAM. As importantly, Google maintains a worldwide staff of individuals dedicated to maintaining the security of their applications and the data and information of their users.
The service comes at no direct cost to the College and will instead free some IT staff to focus on the use of these technologies to support teaching and learning.
What Do I Need to Do?
Your current password will work, unless if it is not of sufficient length. Passwords must be at least six characters long. If you encounter an error, please reset your password here.
Netmail will remain active until July 1, 2009. To retain your messages, you will need to bring them over to the Google server. For information on this, click here for the FAQ page and read about moving from Netmail to Gmail.
